    This bit of news is a couple of weeks old but I didn't see a discussion other than a link in the media thread.

    The gun that police concluded was used to shoot one woman and a photograph taken moments after a second woman had been shot were found at accused serial killer Lonnie Franklin Jr.'s South Los Angeles house, according to grand jury transcripts reviewed by The Times.

    They've got pretty incriminating evidence it seems. Yet his attorney said:

    It happens easily indeed if they find a murder weapon and photographs of victims in the home of the ham sandwich, whose DNA matches evidence at the crime scenes. Wonder what she could have said to challenge that. "My client didn't know any of that was there, someone must have put it there."

    JMO but it's a pretty lousy attempt from the lawyer. There is no comparison between a ham sandwich and Mr. Franklin being indicted here. Just because there is an old adage admitting that some people get indicted on the basis of flimsy evidence doesn't mean it happened to her client here. It is going to be very hard for the defense to explain how the ham sandwich's DNA ended up in a bag with Janecia Peters's remains in it and how her murder weapon ended up in the residence of said ham sandwich.





    Does anybody know of any Brenda connected to Franklin? An ex-lover maybe? This sounds like it might mean something IMO.
